I am not so bothered about the seats as I don’t think the drawers would support a person’s weight. But the table really interests me as this type of accessory is generally only available in very expensive upscale kitchens.

Sadly, I’ve not seen a good pull out table hack for the IKEA kitchen cabinet system. I’m still hoping IKEA will add one to their range.
But in the meantime, there are possible workarounds.
3 ideas for a kitchen cabinet pull out table
#1 UTRUSTA pull out shelf
The UTRUSTA pull-out shelf may work as a pull out table of sorts. Install it just below the countertop. Add a handle and it will turn into a nifty table.
The hack will mean adding a shelf on drawer slides between two drawers or under the countertop before the top drawer. As the METOD kitchen does not come with face rails between drawers, this method will take a lot more planning to get it right. But it’s possible.
Hope that helps you get started with your hack.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.
